Midway, UT. In celebration of 50 years of motorcycle racing in Utah, Utah Motocross Promotions, LLC will host the Western Indoor Motocross Nationals. Beginning Friday August 13th 2010 and running through Sunday August 15th 2010, the roaring engines of highflying motocross machines will invade the Maverik Center in West Valley City, UT.
Top level pro racers, men and women, will be coming into town for a chance at earning a portion of the $46,000 purse. Along with the pros, select amateur classes will be able to ride and race the same track as the pros on Friday and Saturday. Sunday will include even more amateur classes on a more amateur friendly track.
This will be the first ever large event for Pro Women in the State of Utah. With a purse of $11,000, this is expected to be an exciting battle with some of the best names in the business. In the premier 450 class, racers from across the national will be fighting for their chance at stand at the top of the podium. And it is expected that many of the 450 class racers will also race in the Lites class, looking to take a piece of the large purse being offered in that class as well.
The main Pro Event begins at 7:00pm on both Friday August 13th, and Saturday August 14th. The indoor racing will offer spectators exciting bar-to-bar racing, large jumps and other obstacles making for incredible action. Along with the fastest guys and gals in the west, the event will include some of the west’s best amateur racers, who will be competing for trophies and special prizes in a variety of amateur classes. And in honor of the Women Pros, all amateur women racers will go home with a prize. No one will go home empty handed.
In addition, a special charity benefit class will be running all three days pitting Law Enforcement Officers against their uniformed Fire Fighter friends in a head-to-head motocross race. At the end of the first two nights racing, the winning group will be given a large traveling trophy which will remain with that group until the following year. All race entry proceeds for the Fire vs Law class will be split and go directly to the Utah State Firemen’s Association and Fallen Officer Foundation of Utah. Any certified fire fighter or law enforcement officer is welcome to race this benefit class.
Tickets to the event will be available at the Maverik Center box office, or from Ticketmaster. All racers interested in participating may register on the XTRM website. For more information, contact Jeff Germain at
